The Nanocoat Regulator is a Foehn defense structure that supports nearby structures by hardening the nanomaterials in their construction, increasing their structural integrity.
The nanites can not only be used for building construction but also for strengthening their armor and making them more resistant to damage. The Nanocoat Regulator can create thin layers of protective coating made from nanofibers and place it on structures nearby. This will result in these buildings being able to take up to 50% more damage than usual.
The effect does not overlap so it is not recommended to build the Nanocoat Regulators close to each other but at strategic positions instead. If the base is on low power, the effect wears off.
A rather situational structure, the Nanocoat Regulator addresses the fragility weakness of light buildings (such as the War Factory and technology expanders) and strengthens the formidable defenses (so that they can stand their ground longer and therefore increases their chance of being upgraded). It is only truly beneficial if the Foehn base is expected to be attacked constantly and/or the Foehn commander wishes to minimize losing buildings or defenses. Nonetheless, the Nanocoat Regulator, combined with the Signal Inhibitor, can make a Foehn base near impenetrable (in spite of the amount of money and power needed).
